Lecturer/Assistant Professor - Arabic language/Arabic studies

Wellesley College seeks applications for a full-time, renewable Arabic language/Arabic studies appointment beginning in Fall 2014. Emphasis is on Arabic language teaching, and qualified applicants should be prepared to teach Arabic at all levels (elementary, intermediate and advanced). Native or near-native fluency in Standard Arabic required. The successful candidate will teach four courses per year and contribute substantially to the Arabic Language and Middle Eastern Studies programs. PhD preferred; MA or ABD considered. The appointment will likely be at the rank of Lecturer, although a tenure-eligible rank of Assistant Professor is a possibility for a candidate with strong research potential.

Responsibilities of the position will include teaching four courses per year and participating in the core activities of the Arabic Language and Middle Eastern Studies Programs. Salary is competitive and commensurate with credentials; the successful application will be a benefits eligible member of the Wellesley College faculty with access to a conference travel budget and competitive faculty awards to support research.

Please send by October 15, 2013 a letter of application, c.v., graduate transcripts, three letters of recommendation, and a teaching portfolio through our online application system at:

(The online application will request names/email addresses so that recommenders or dossier services may submit the letters directly.). If circumstances make it impossible to submit any materials through our application site, please email us at  

Wellesley College is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer, and we are committed to increasing the diversity of the college community and the curriculum. Candidates who believe they can contribute to that goal are encouraged to apply.
